Paul's story

Paul is 25 years old. He earns his income through the sale of crops and livestock. He grows maize, beans, coffee, and cassava. He also has chickens and pigs.

Paul looks forward to becoming a Community Knowledge Worker (CKW). As a CKW he will use the materials in his business-in-a-box (smartphone, solar charging set, and scale) to disseminate vital agricultural information to the other members of his village, helping them to improve their crop yields and to increase their incomes. He especially looks forward to being able to provide his community with information about the weather as well as give them tips about innovative farming practices.

With the additional money that he will earn as a CKW, Paul would like to buy land where he will build a house. He dreams of finding a wife, getting married, and having children. He hopes that he will be able to educate his children and give them a good life.
